HP Planning To Launch New PC Brand?

Former CEO of Voodoo PC Rahul Sood was at a gaming event last night where he sparked a few rumors regarding HP. Sood says that by the end of 2007, HP will have launched a new brand of PCs with a completely new name. That’s right, not Compaq, not Voodoo, not HP, but rather a whole new entity! He went on to describe that the PCs will be in the “high-to-mid tier” of performance, which I’m assuming will be something similar to Dell’s XPS series of computers.

These new PCs will be better than HP’s current offerings, but not as fantastic as Voodoo’s. No release date or even month was given. We’ll keep you posted.
